Regain a Healthy, Youthful Look through Skin Rejuvenation
Skin rejuvenation can remove the blemished, damaged outer layers of skin to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, sun spots, age spots, acne scars, and irregular pigmentation. Dustin Heringer, M.D., offers laser skin resurfacing, chemical peels, and microdermabrasion as part of his suite of skin rejuvenation services in Scottsdale, AZ. Skin rejuvenation can make your skin look and feel fresh and healthy, and can provide a dramatic complement to other cosmetic surgical procedures.
Skin rejuvenation can help your skin look and feel dramatically softer and more youthful, and can be performed using a variety of specialized procedures.
At Arizona Ocular and Facial Plastic Surgery, we use a specialized CO2 fractional laser to complete laser skin resurfacing treatments, which dissolves the bonds between damaged skin cells. The laser simultaneously stimulates the production of collagen, a naturally occurring protein that helps your skin retain moisture and elasticity. This protein production improves the look and longevity of the new layer of skin.
Our CO2 laser is the highest intensity laser currently available for skin resurfacing treatments, and provides a number of benefits. The laser has been used to eliminate or diminish the presence of most scars, age spots, fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, and uneven skin pigmentation. It has also been used to successfully treat skin cancer in its earliest stages. Following your laser skin resurfacing treatment, you can expect some redness and discomfort, similar to a moderate sunburn.
A chemical peel begins with the application of trichloroacetic acid, or a similar acid solution, which will remove the damaged outer layers of skin. Chemical peels reveal a fresh, smooth layer of skin, reducing blemishes, sun damage, areas of rough skin, age spots, acne, wrinkles, and uneven skin pigmentation.
Just as with laser skin resurfacing, chemical peels provide many benefits. Chemical peels are frequently used as spot treatments and can eliminate or reduce the appearance of stretch marks. Chemical peels can be administered as light, medium, or deep. A strength level will be recommended based on the results you and your doctor hope to achieve. Your recovery time will depend on the strength of your treatment.
Microdermabrasion is a treatment that utilizes a gentle spray of microcrystals to remove the outermost layer of dry, dead skin cells, revealing a layer of new skin cells containing higher levels of collagen and elastin.
A much less intensive skin rejuvenation approach than its counterpart, dermabrasion, microdermabrasion has been used to treat a variety of conditions including acne, age spots, minor scars, as well as rosacea, a chronic inflammation of facial skin. Microdermabrasion provides immediate results and involves virtually no healing or recovery period.
